Additional Info: The Chevette 2300HS was created for rally homologation. The Chevette HSR (1979-1980) added wide arches and side skirt. Rally cars had closer to 250bhp and many had a 2.6 litre engine. A Chevette called the HS-X was also available with walnut trim and I believe may have had a turbo option.
